I have two parakeets, Bella and Kiwi. I got Kiwi first and she has always had a bad temperament. I thought it might help to get her a friend since I am at school all day. Hence... Bella, soooo sweet. I separated them for a few days when I got them like I was told to do. But Kiwi still has not gotten use to her and it's been a coule months. She is frequently pecking at Bella and running her away from one of their food dishes, treats or toys. Today I noticed Bella's droppings are a little runny. I'm worried that she may not be getting enough food. What can I do to have my birds adjust to one another?

if she's not eating very much, her poops will be a bright green.

You might try keeping them separate for a lot longer. Quaranteen usually lasts at least a few weeks or more. Since they've already met, put the separate cages in the same room, but start far away. Then put them closer and closer, so they have time to get used to each other. Also, do they each have their owm food dishes and water dishes? You need a feeding dish and a water dish for EACH bird.

Possibly someone on here has better ideas. I'm just going by what I've read on here.

Good luck and welcome to the forum. You will learn a lot here!

Hi and welcome! The runny poops are probably stress related. And a stressed out bird gets sick easier. It sounds like separation is in order. Good luck to you!

I agree you should probably separate them. Sounds very stressful for little Bella and yes stress can certainly cause runny poops.
Maybe separate cages but some out of cage, supervised play time together?
Hopefully they will eventually get along but there are times when, just like people, 2 birds just plain don't like each other. Or in this case 1 that doesn't like the other frown
I hope you're able to work it out so they become friends smile
